Hello,

First, remove it from the wall plug, fix it back in and try again. If that doesn't work, it means there is a problem, read further.

The issue you describe is consistent with a power supply board issue. This is the board where the AC goes to. This problem may have occurred as a result of irregular power supply, or excess power supply or power surge.

The TV is receiving current but cannot circulate or transfer the current to other necessary part of the TV because of the defective power supply board.

I do not think it needs replacement, rather some defective capacitors are causing this issue.
Open unit up and take a look at the power supply board.You will probably see one or more electrolytic filter capacitors that are bulged up in the top-not perfectly flat like the others.

The value of these capacitors will be different, most likely they will be somewhere around-820 to 2200uF/25 V( or /10V sometimes)

You can replace them with same values but I would recommend the voltage rating to be higher(like 35V for an original 25V) for reliability purposes.

What happens is,these bulged top capacitors will cause a low and unfiltered DC voltage=main board will malfunction(the relay will keep clicking until the caps are holding enough charge to bring the voltage up over a threshold point).

You can buy these capacitors at any Fry's or Radioshack store or you can order them online at vendors like "mcmelectronics.com"(look for electrolytic capacitors).
After replacing these capacitor(capacitors) most likely the normal operation will be restored.

Note: There may be also some other causes for this symptom ,like a defective T con board ,or main board,but the bulged top capacitors are the most common cause for this issue.

If you don't know about TV repairers, take the TV to the nearest repairman to fix the fault for you. Also, note that TV stores a lot of current, so wait a while before opening the TV back cover.

I hope this helps.

Good luck.

    I don't know if you fixed your problem or not but I had the exact same thing. I repaired it myself for around $15. The chopper mosfet for the 24v/15v circuit was shorted. It took out the PWM controller, 450v 1000uf cap, and fuse. I replaced those and walaaaaaa. If you need a schematic, drop me an email, will gladly share it. Back2lifeElectronics@gmail.com

I have a RCA L32WD22. When I push power on, the green light comes on then goes amber and the TV shuts off. Takes about 4 seconds and never get a picture.


I would resolder the inverter chips about five of those on the inverter board first. If that doesn't fix it, try the Power Supply unit (PSU), order this capacitors http://www.ebay.com/itm/Repair-Kit-RCA-L32WD22-LCD-TV-Capacitors-/230637983468?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item35b31856ec

or better if you can get a new PSU altogether, but doubt you can find one right now.

Close the the unit up as you had before opening. Take the unit to a service centre and have them fix it. They don't have manuals to repair so, when they say, "We can't fix this" you take the work order and call1877-297-8391 and they will get you a new tv

RCA L32WD22 with no picture.


The backlight has failed. May be the power supply for it, the inverter board or the lamps. Not something you can fix unless you are a tech.
